Profiles / Stories
It’s always great to hear from those who have been successful.
This section profiles many individuals, working across different industries, at various stages of their careers. Their interviews demonstrate that is possible to have a successful career regardless of whether or not you have a disability. They also illustrate the adjustments that can be made in the workplace.
The Bank’s effectiveness relies on the intelligence, experience and commitment of its people, and attracting, developing and retaining the best possible people across the Bank’s diverse range of functions is essential.To achieve this the Bank is committed to ensuring that employees (both potential and actual) are treated fairly, have a positive experience and feel able to contribute to the best of their ability. It is by focussing on these Equality, Diversity and Inclusion imperatives that allows us to deliver our objectives in the most efficient way.
The Bank has actively pursued disability initiatives for several years, as a member of the Employers’ Forum on Disability since 1990, as a recognised ‘Disability Confident’ employer, and with an active disability network since 2008.The Bank’s disability network includes staff with a disability or those who have an interest in disability. The purpose of the network is to promote and encourage awareness of disability matters. It aims to support staff with a disability by ensuring the Bank’s facilities, environment and polices are effective and accessible and by championing the value of disabled talent.The network meets every 6 weeks to discuss disability issues and to put forward any actions that are required. The network regularly invites high-profile speakers to the Bank and is involved in work related to recruitment, security, technology, events and facilities. In addition to this network, there are plenty of social activities across all of our diversity groups and there are plenty of social and sports clubs at the Bank that anyone can get involved in.
Our success depends on having the best possible talent in all areas of our operations, working in an environment where new ideas and approaches contribute to our effectiveness. This means not only an inclusive approach to recruitment, encouraging people with diverse backgrounds, thinking and experience to join the Bank, but also providing a work environment which supports all staff in developing to their full potential.
The Bank benefits enormously from flexible work arrangements that encourage talented people to join and stay, and a similar openness to different backgrounds and experience within the work environment is vital for the Bank’s success.

He has now learnt how to live with his stammer and regularly answers telephone calls on the Bank's Public Information and Enquiries Group.A team leader who is visually impaired has had special screen reading software installed onto his computer which allows him to do his job effectively.
